I dusted off an old idea: Cider Stew. My mom made this when I was younger, and it was delicious.
But instead of making it on the stovetop, I decided to do it in the Crock Pot. The result was just as delicious as I remember ... and fairly healthy, too. It was the one decent thing I ate all weekend! :D
I hope you like it as much as I do. Here's the recipe:
- 1 cup onion
2 cups carrot
3 cups potato
3/4 pound stew beef
1 Tablespoon thyme
2 cups apple cider
salt, pepper to taste
Cook at least 8 hours, until beef is fall-apart tender.
Makes 6 servings of about 1 1/2 cups each.
On the nutritional front, it stacks up pretty well: 268 calories, 5.1 g fat (1.8 sat.), 36.8 g carb (5 g fiber, 17.4 sugars) and 19.5 g pro. That gives it a WW Points value of 5.
P.S. I'll try to add a picture later, after I heat some up for dinner.
